Superstar Rajinikanth is back with a bang as he surprised the fan numbers with his new look as Moideen Bhai in his daughter Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Lal Salaam. The first look poster, released by the makers on Sunday, shows Rajinikanth in a never seen avatar.

Lyca Productions took to Twitter and wrote, “Everyone’s favourite BHAI is back in Mumbai Make way for #Thalaivar  SuperStar  #Rajinikanth as #MoideenBhai in #LalSalaam” The poster pictured Thalaivar in a kurta and red topi, with sunglasses and an intimidating grimace on his face.

The poster has been shared over a million times, with many users commenting on how much they admire Rajinikanth's iconic style and charisma. Lal Salaam is Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s third directorial venture after 3 and Vai Raja Vai.

The film also stars Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in lead roles, while Rajinikanth plays an extended cameo as Moideen Bhai, a Mumbai-based don. The film has music composed by Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman, who had earlier shared a video of jamming with Aishwarya for the film.

Lal Salaam is expected to release later this year. The film is said to be a political thriller with a message. Meanwhile the veteran star is busy with other project Jailer, an action-comedy directed by Nelson Dilipkumar.  The first look poster of Jailer was released on June 17, 2022. The film has music composed by Anirudh Ravichander and is slated to release on August 10, 2023.
